Very nice aromas of vanilla, caramel and candied smoke . . . Yes, I made that up. Pours dark brown . . . Almost black like a porter but typical schwarzbier look. Easy pour produces a nice fluffy head. Flavors are roasty with a pleasant candied sweetness. Feel is smooth and creamy. Overall, this is a unique and well executed take on the style.

L: Very dark brown, almost black, with a small off white head and lots of residual lacing

S: Dark roasted malt, some coffee

T: First you get a dose of roasted malt bitterness, some coffee, and it finishes with toasted bread sweetness and a faint kiss of hop bitterness. Very well balanced, almost like a light porter or session stout.

F: Nice full body, surprising body from a 4% lager.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

Look: Black in color. Soft, khaki-colored head.

Smell: Roasted barley malt. Salt.

Taste: A malty, roasted flavor in the front gives way to a smoked malt middle, finished with a hop bitterness that doesn't have the same assertiveness in every sip.

Feel: Nice body, mouthfeel, and carbonation for a beer of this style.

Very good quality, sessionable, flavorful black lager that reminds me more of a porter or stout.

Good complexity, some heaviness dor a lager, less than expected carbonation. Pair with white fish, lamb.

This is a surprisingly good beer that I had with brussels sprouts in winter.
And if that is too precise a pairing, you probably will enjoy it by itself as I did also.
This almost is a classic rendition as I remember the style.
The only improvement I can suggest is I found the hops and roasted malt to dry the mouth a bit too much.
